Default Calculation of indeminisation period by Pôle Emploi

Hello,

I've a question regarding the calculation of indemnisation period by Pôle Emploi, more particularly, its increment as a function of the no. of days you worked in the last job and whether or not you were let go from the periode d'essai, so basically the number of days you'll be paid the unemployment benefits. I'll ask using an example.

Say before joining a job, I've x number of days of benefits remaining. Say now I join a job and I'm let go from it in the trial period (période d'essai) within four months, do you think this'll affect (increase) the number of days (x) of indemnity/benefits?

The reason I ask this question is: very unfortunately for me, I've been having a rough professional time since the beginning of 2018 and have been let go couple of times, always in the respective période d'essai. When I look at "nombre des jours restant pour le indemnisation"/the number of days my benefit will last, it doesn't seem to change, unless I'm not completely mistaken. Hence I wonder: if the answer to my question above is no, then what's the reason? Even if I work somewhere 3 months, I'm still contributing to social security, am I correct? (If not, please correct me).

Secondly, is there a Maison du Justice that I go to talk about this? There're several in Paris, but I can't pi npoint which one will be able to answer my question?

Sorry to hear you are having trouble with work. It does seem strange that the days you work aren't added, I can' t see why they wouldn't count. Unless there is a 500 day limit for everyone? I'd go nad ask at the PE - or send them an online message.

Thanks for your answer. So first, 500 was a hypothetical number, I'm going to change that to x to avoid any confusion. For my specific case though, I keep seeing that I've 473 days or unemployment benefits remaining, and even though I was let go from my last job after 5 months of working (in the extended période d'essai), I don't seem to see an increment from 473 to a bigger number.

P.S. Thank you for your sympathy! I really am a very serious person when it comes to work and study (I do have advanced degrees), but something has been happening since 2018, which I'm trying to detect and reverse.

The unemployment system has changed since I was on extended unemployment a few years ago, but I think where you may be hitting your problems is that it's not a matter of carrying over the days you had remaining on a job to add to your total entitlement.

As I understand it, they take into account only the number of days you worked in the last x number of months or years. So, let's just say the period of time is 3 years (I have no idea what the actual is at the moment). If you worked 4 years ago, it doesn't count. If in the last 3 years, you worked for one year, then got unemployment for year 2 and then worked all of year 3, they will consider that you have 2 years of work in the last 3 years - no matter what your situation was before the 3 year period for evaluation started. (And you may well have used up your "credit" for year 1 if you drew unemployment in year 2.)

The Pole Emploi site used to have a pretty good explanation of how they evaluate your past work history (and for how long), but that may be from before they made all the recent changes.
